8. LIFE AND DEATH.

I wrote this poem as a tribute to someone who played a major role in my life when I was beset by personal problems a number of years ago. She was indeed a unique individual.

The Loss Of A Friend ...

I remember how you guided me
When I was in the dark
And how you’d set my mind at ease
With just a simple look.
I remember your compassion
When life was brutal
And how you’d calm my soul
With words of gentle humility.
I knew I was never truly on my own
As our shadows walked hand in hand together.
Oh, how I cried for you
When I heard that you had gone.
The world is a poorer place today … and tomorrow …
Well, tomorrow will never be the same.
